Canzano wants the Blazers to lock up Oden long-term. Should we be afraid?

He is more explicit on his radio show than this article, but the sentiment is there. Lock up Oden long-term Blazers or he is gonna leave. Hmm...didn't we hear this from him a couple of off-season's ago with another player with shaky knees?

And please tell me how the Blazers humiliated Oden by not giving him an extension on his rookie contract? That statement by Canzano shows an embarrassing lack of depth.

He mentions 4 or 3 years for $40 million. Why would we make him the 3rd highest paid player on the team for next 3 or 4 years? Now that would be embarrassing. Sorry, but I can't see other GMs giving Oden that kind of offer either. Blazer fans are so panicked right now that they are willing to throw anything at Oden on the slim hopes that he will not be considered a colossal draft mistake...even to the detriment of the long-term success of the team. Look up the term "loss aversion." That is what is going on here with Oden.
